“ForceEffect, wow, that sounds cool, but what does it do?” I hear you ask. Well, to start with it allows:
•Freehand sketching of elements and construction lines with snaps, constraints, and inferencing
•Object dimensioning, global scaling, units, constraints
•Import image as background
•Create joints (welded, pinned)
•Break element at joints
•Create supports (fixed, grounded, sliding)
•Create loads (known, unknown, distributed) and moments
•Add weight to individual elements
•Compute reaction forces and moments for equilibrium and over-constrained systems
•Toggle forces to show force vector components
•Results reporting with picture, results, all equations
•Save and load files from Autodesk 360
•In app tutorials
I won’t lie to you, I have no idea what most of that is. ForceEffect is an app that I will probably never use, but that’s ok as it is not aimed at me! Oh, did I mention, it’s free also.
